Will this work?

I just got 2000 Quicksilver 330 airdeck with HALKEY ROBERTS valves.

Localy I can only get and I figures out that if it can inflate a tire 30+ psi, then the 10psi airdeck should be a breese.

Am I right here?
Do I need any special valve adapter for HALKEY ROBERTS valves(other than just tube fitting)?

It would probably take an agonizingly long time for this thing to inflatate a SIB. Although they claim 'high volume' it doesn't say what the CFM output actually is. If your looking for a 12 V system, then check out the Bravo pumps. If you are using a trailer, and don't need to pump right at the launch, you can get some very good high volume 110V pumps much cheaper than what the similarly performing 12 V pumps cost.

Here are some links to various pumps;

I have this one which works very well. It is very reasonably priced compared to similarly performing 12v pumps such as the higher end Bravo pumps. Additionally you wont destroy your car battery with a 110v system.

Do you you know if I need special adapter for the HALKEY ROBERTS valves, or as long as hose fits I'll be fine?

I think it depends on the pump.

I'm using a Bravo 12BST, and I had to use a modified adaptor (details below).

H-R valves have a "push-to-open" center pin, and if the pump has a shutoff, it will detect the pressure needed to blow the valves open as the inflation pressure, and shut off prematurely (or not start at all.)

The H-R adaptors aren't a lot of money (I think the one I ordered was around $8 US), but they can be tough to find. They are handy as they hold the hose to the valve in a very secure, and airtight manner. You may , however, need to modify it with a piece of wire across the adaptor to hold the pin open. On mine, removing the rubber sealing washer and placing the pin nearly at the shoulder worked well.

Thanks,

I made an adapter from scratch for now while the factory one being mailed to me by NRS.
I've also bought generic INTEX 12v high volume pump and INTEX double action manual pump.

I was able to get as much air as i could to the point where I started hearing some hissing from the manual pump as it could not hold on to the pressure inside the deck anymore.

My question is, can you use manual pump to get the floor to desired 10psi?
